I'm having trouble importing a folder on a network drive where none of the files are showing up in the importer at all.

There are two folders on a network drive.

One is HD mkv files which has a subfolder for each move file. These imported perfectly fine and are all happily in the movie manager.
The second folder contains SD avi files. There are several movie files in this folder as well as subfolders with movies corresponding to their folder name.

The problem is that none of the SD files are showing up in the importer in any way. I've tried removing and re-adding the folder that has not worked. "Always group files in same folder" is unchecked. AVI files are included in the Media Portal filetypes.

Any idea what the problem might be?

:D in advance.

Could you try to remove and then read the import path for your SD files and then post your log files?

Would you be willing to try a test build with a little bit extra logging?

Just a heads up. I too am having problems with som MKVs not being imported. I do know if I add the folder the movie is actually in to the watch list, then it will find the movie. However if just scanning from the hdmovies folder, its missing a good handful of movies. Note this did happen in versions before 0.7. However always thought it was more something on my end.

I have encountered this bug too. The importer is apparently using the name of the file's parent folder for detection, instead of using the filename to scan for the movie. For instance:

Not working:
C:\Movies\1977\Star Wars.avi

Working:
C:\Movies\1977\Star Wars\Star Wars.avi

This is using Moving Pictures version 0.7.2.545. I found this problem after adding a folder containing mkv files, but the problem persists even if I rename the files as .avi or moved it to a folder that doesn't have this problem.

    @Agony:

    Open your Moving Pictures configuration -> Importer settings -> uncheck
    Prefer FOldername For Movie Matching

    By default the folder name will be used if there's only ONE movie in the folder.

    yeah I found out about that. I feel that the engine should use folder name only when the file name does not match.
